Accepting discomfort might seem the easier of the methods to deal with discomfort. like getting up at a specific time for work, brushing your teeth and maybe preparing a lunchbag. ‘Everybody has to work’, so no discussion there?
Accepting discomfort, standing up to give a speech at your brother’s wedding, giving birth, eating vitamins, training your body, spending time with people you don’t particularly like. Accepting discomfort is what most of us do, but does it work in the long run?
Do we accept discomfort because we have no better way of dealing with it? Is it just our way of submitting to victimhood of things ‘we must do’ and have no choice?
Are you fully aware if you are accepting discomfort or just submitting to a coded belief that you have no other choices? Is there a way of accepting discomfort that is a very conscious choice, because you really want the discomfort? Is there a way to accept discomfort where it gives you joy, because it feels like the right thing to do, like changing your baby’s nappy? A moment in time, that could be joyful if you could just find that different approach in your heart?
And ‘should’ you accept all discomfort?
